Addicts Open Thread

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

It’s that time of the week again, time for the Addicts Weekly Open Thread!  So, let’s get the conversation going!  Oh and remember…just because this is posted here today doesn’t mean you can’t comment on it all week long.  This open thread will still be open for comments long after today is over!

Here’s where you can talk about anything you want to talk about…TSTO Related, Simpson’s Related or ANYTHING.  Just no Add me requests…those should go here.  We’ll give you a few suggestions (like most Sunday’s you can talk about the current episode of the Simpsons) but for the most part you’re free to talk about ANYTHING your little Tapping Fingers desire…just keep it PG.

So, here is your Open Thread…..

First of all, today is Mother’s Day here in the US (and a few other countries as well) so Happy Mother’s Day to all the great moms out there!

The Simpsons are back this week with an all-new episode!  What do you think will happen in this week’s episode?

ICYMI…a new episode of Addicts Live aired yesterday.  We talked Who Shot Mr. Burns, Mother’s Day and Sarah Wiggum. Check it out here if you missed it.

The Who Shot Mr. Burns (Part Three) mini-event hit our games this past Wednesday.  What are your thoughts on this mini-event?  How are you progressing with it?

How about the rest of your weekend?  Anything fun and exciting going on? Enjoying your Spring?

So chat about the Simpsons, TSTO, Update fun, or anything else you can think of! (Just no politics, it never ends well)  Can’t wait to chat with you all, you know we love hearing from you!

Have Fun!  And happy Sunday!

  1. Just removed some houses from storage. Try to remove blue house, instead of getting just blue houses I also received purple houses. I assumed it is because when I stored them I stored them together. This was very annoying.

    I assume this is a side effect of the new group store. Instead of adding to the number in storage it might be storing additional information.

    • I originally thought it was the order that you stored the buildings but then realised that more Blue Houses were placed out of storage than the one you stored in the video. I did notice something similar when I was placing some Grand Canals out of the storage and the Queen’s Carriage would be ready to place when I haven’t placed all the 5 types of canals (only have 2 of each) but it might of been that I placed the 2 GC 5s and then the carriage would appear next.

  3. Yanny vs Laurel

    Check out twitter. I hear “Yammy” except when it is sped up or or high pitch (+8 semitones), then I hear Laurel. Would be interested in a poll which would distinguish be age and sex. (Laurel – Male – Under 21, etc).

      • LOL, it CLEARLY is both. For what I gather, it was started by high school students so it is not based on age. And it doesn’t appear to be based on sex. So I guess it is possibly based on ear shape (affecting high and low pitch), and/or how your brain is wired.

        It just proves that when people say they heard two different things, they may just both be right.

      Training walls always add points, hide some behind your buildings.

      Liked by 3 people

    • Like omnipotentwiz suggested, you can place training walls. (The red wall with a door on it) You need to be on level 33 or higher to buy them. You may need quite a few though to bring your star rating back. I think you will need a minimum of 5 per star ( though it may vary on each level) 🐱

      • Ok but then can I get rid of the walls after a certain amount of time there’s gotta be another way because I’ve been playing for a few years It’s happened before but I dont remember it taking too much time or effort to get it back to full strength? They really don’t go with my theme?

          One, hiding them behind buildings makes them not need to go with your theme, because they arent visible.
          Two, try this:

        • Yes, I believe you can, I had about 8 hidden, but I stored them as a test to see and my rating stayed at 5 stars.

          I’m not sure if it is still the case, but I recall that visiting ‘other Springfield’ and tapping on Sideshow Bob also helps to improve the righteousness rating. (that’s if you can find him-if you stay in the 1 spot he usually appears)

          The higher the level, the harder it is to get the points back. 😦

          I like my town to look nice too, so I know what you mean about it not going with your town theme, but you can hide them, I recommend hiding a few behind the school, then wait maybe 2 or 3 days and store the walls to see if your rating is back up, then you can just sell the walls.

    I’ve found that I love spreading the word about this game. I can safely say I’m an addict, usually getting on during my free time or just when I have a moment of decorating inspiration. Most people have at tried if not just heard about the game due to it’s age, so it’s easy to slip into conversation. We all know it here, this game is so much fun and easily the best town builder on mobile. I love having a group of people, all quiet and working on their towns with the occasional response of “Huh” and “you talking to me?” Super excited to see my friends town’s come together in the future.

    I’m having a glitch with a job. I have a job that is stuck in a loop. It is one of the jobs where you send Springfielders to do a job, I have half of my Springfield in the job. I tap on the job to complete it. The money and xp gets collected but it says that they are still in the job and says they are complete, when I exit and return to the game the thumbs up is back and I can recollect the money and xp. It is on a endless loop. How can I fix this?

  14. Hi everybody…just a heads up to my neighbors. I have had over 50 requests to join the neighborhood in the last month, and more coming in every day. Soooo…I’ve started checking off my neighbor visitors and am gonna continue for two weeks. If you aren’t a visitor at least once by then, I’m going to delete you and make room for some other folks. My thinking is, if you don’t ever visit, then you probably won’t care (or even notice) if you are deleted. I especially want to make room for some newer (under level 50) players and some avid designers. Not trying to be mean to anybody, just hoping to help some players who would like to join the neighborhood, and currently can’t. If you’re one of my neighbors, and you already know that you never visit, you can delete me and you won’t hurt my feelings😁. Thanks for understanding.

          • Omni…I read some advice 30 years ago that has stuck with me all this time. When you have the urge to speak (these days, it’s posting)…ask yourself these three questions:
            Does it have to be said?
            Does it have to be said by me?
            Does it have to be said by me, now?
            Unless the answer is yes to all three…hold your council…you will be amazed at how often an hour from now the necessity has disappeared, and you’re glad you held off on a remark.
            I know that I don’t always follow my own advice, but it’s occasionally saved me from making an embarassing (or annoying) comment…you can always answer later, but you can’t erase a thoughtless remark.

  15. Is anyone else having problem with the content having to re-download again, and again, and again (and again). Every second or third time I open my game, it downloads all the updates again (all 1408.3MB of it). It’s done it maybe 6 times since the Who Shot Mr. Burns event has started. And it has been a problem with new updates in the past. Anyone else experiencing this?

    • You need to free up space on your device. The game requires 3.5-4GB of free space, i recommend 5gb. Free up some space and the issue with stop. (it’ll go through one more download cycle once you free up the space, but then it won’t do it again)

  16. This probably sounds petty and stupid, but since EA pulled the plug on the last event so completely after time ran out, I am somewhat cross with them. And, yes, I know they told us right from the start, but for every other major event the gave us a little grace period until the next app store update. They established precedent, am I really so wrong in thinking they would continue doing what they always did?
    The main reason I am cross is that I missed Fit Tony on my B game. Came down to the wire, I just needed one last round of chips before the end of the event, but couldn’t check in because of work. He is not really such a great character, and I do have him in my A game, but still… Was kind of shocked when I opened the game about half hour after the end, and everything was just gone!
    Right now, I can’t even look at the game, and don’t really want to play the new event. Still stuck at part 2, because I haven’t even checked in once a day. It will probably pass, especially due to this great community I like to be a part of. So I am going to grit my teeth and try to finish the mini-event, at least in my A game. B game will be paused for now.

    Now that there is no major event, it is a good chance to consider future developments in the game. I was wondering what ideas anyone has about items which would be really awesome additions to the game in coming events. There was a lot of discussion about having the ability to have ‘night mode’ and when you visit neighbours it would appear in either day or night, depending on their timezone – also having lights in/on buildings when dark. I also like the idea of being able to build bridges across rivers (having difference options to choose from such as suspension and old stone bridges. A potential Shelbyville expansion could be great, which could work similarly to how Krustyland operates. A trainline would be great which could work in a similar way to the monorail and could contain actual trains and stations. Finally, I would love to see cars being able to be placed on roads to make it look more realistic – instead of placing them on just concrete… their lights could turn on at night time. I’d love to hear any other ideas anyone has! It would be great to see the game keep developing (the new storage function is a good example of this).

Mike can be voiced and have an animation where he bashes his head in walls. They could have the boy band use the pop stage. Jambowski’s stadium would be a fun addition and their private island would be an expansion.. I’d love to design my own private island(s) to send the Simpson’s to.The private jet could be like the Krustyland shuttle.

    Guys who thinks there should be a Krusty Land event added to the game?

    Liked by 2 people

    • I’m always up for more Krustyland!
      It would require the biggest update since going HD, but I think they should move it to next to Springfield Heights on the other side of the mountains. They can then make it work like Heights where you click on rides to access tasks instead of characters having a new task list when going there, and they could remove the back wall so they can add more land whenever they want like Heights.
      I also want a park decorating feature where when you click on the entrance you can choose the “skin” and it would change all the Krustyland specific decorations (railings, tents, trash cans, etc.) and mascots to the theme. They could do Halloween, Christmas, Valentine’s, Patriotic…
      And I want mascots for Disgruntled Goat, Uncle Ant, Ku Klux Clam & Rich Uncle Skeleton, full characters for Tina Ballerina, Corporal Punishment, Sideshow Luke Perry & Sideshow Raheem, and a host of new rides.
      I’ve thought about this way too much.
